Ovum comments:Deal with Intel raises Devicescape's market profile
Daryl Schoolar, principal analyst at Ovum believes working with Intel raises Devicescape's market profile, gives it greater credibility and should help it build up its virtual network, which in turn should make its solution more attractive to mobile operators.
"Devicescape has had other notable wins for its Wi-Fi offload solution in the past, such as with MetroPCS and iPass, but none as high-profile as Intel. This deal gives increased market credibility, which should help open other doors for Devicescape, including those of more mobile operators. The increased interest in Wi-Fi offload has driven new players into the market, with Ericsson being the most notable example. Working with Intel will obviously help get Devicescape's application on more devices and grow its hotspot directory. In turn, the bigger the directory, the more high-quality access points Devicescape will be able to provide.
